Storyboard Description

Edgar Allen Poe

Storyboard Text

  • I watched the old man for 7 nights. Each time spending one hour opening the door. To stare at his evil eye for which I despised. I hated that evil, pale blue, vulture eye.
  • On the eighth night I felt different. I knew I had to get rid of that evil eye the only way I knew how. So the eye could torture me no more.
  • I accidentally startled the old man awake with a slight click of the lantern. So I slipped into the shadows of the night in the corner of his chamber where I waited for an hour.
  • CLINK!
  • The old man wouldn't go to sleep. His heartbeat began to get louder. I knew I had to act fast. I shone the light from my lantern on his devilish vulture eye, which I despised so much.
  • I jumped on him and dragged him to the ground. I was stronger than him and had the element of surprise. He never stood a chance.
  • SHRIEK!
  • I dragged the mattress off the old man's bed and pushed it onto him. Then I waited. His heart beat began to get quieter and quieter. Until finally it stopped. He was dead.
